Macy's Inc (M) Stock Spikes on Sale Rumors

Cincinnati, Ohio-based Macy's has around 900 stores in the USA, which includes its Bloomingdale's outlets and its flagship store in New York City's Herald Square.

Talks between the companies are at a preliminary stage and also encompass other ways they could cooperate, one of the people said, adding that a deal for only Macy's real estate is also a possibility.

Besides its eponymous department store in Canada, Hudson's Bay also owns and operates Saks Fifth Avenue and Lord & Taylor. The paper also said there was no certainty anything would come of these talks.

Hudson's Bay has been eager to expand its footprint in the U.S.However, Macy's would be a challenge for Hudson's Bay to absorb. The company had a market cap of C$1.82 billion (US$1.40 billion) as of Thursday's close. In fact, in the same note, Chen listed Hudson's Bay as the most straightforward of acquirers, though it's debt "could make a full transaction prohibitive".
